Pale-yellow crystals of the title compound, C(10)H(9)NO, have been obtained by the reaction of benzyl-amine and methyl propiolate. Weak inter-molecular hydrogen bonding is observed between acetyl-enic H and carbonyl O atoms. The crystal packing is stabilized by these C-H⋯O and by N-H⋯O inter-molecular hydrogen-bonding inter-actions.
